Seal Coating and Crack Filling
How We Do It:
Asphalt Seal Coat is designed to protect asphalt pavements from the damaging effects of the environment, including moisture, pollutants, and oxidation.
Seal Coating also minimizes raveling (the loss of aggregate) and fills minor voids in the surface. Other benefits include creating a uniform color and appearance for all paved asphalt surfaces. Seal Coating makes a smooth and attractive surface that resists aging and protects the valuable pavement.
Prior to Seal Coating the existing cracks will be cleaned and filled from the bottom up with hot pour rubberized crack sealer.
It is recommended that two coats of seal coat be applied with a third coat applied in the major drive lanes.
In the Mid Atlantic region the seal coat season typically runs from April 1st to November 1st.
To reduce long-term maintenance expenses, we recommend that pavement be Seal Coated within the first year after the initial installation. Then every three to four years, depending on traffic and overall condition.
